The Golden Globes are always a great source of red carpet fashion and behind-the-scenes Insta pics, but it’s also stacked with plenty of on-point and timely jokes, thanks to past hosts such as BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon, and Ricky Gervais. Needless to say, the 2018 host had some pretty big (and hilarious) shoes to fill, but after hearing the Hollywood Foreign Press Associations’ pick, we’re more than confident that the late-night funny-man who has been bestowed with this year’s honor will have no trouble doing so.
“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is excited to have Seth Meyers host the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards,” revealed HFPA President Meher Tatna in a statement released today.
Tatna also gave some insight as to the association’s choice, noting, “With his natural comedic wit and innate ability to charm audiences, Seth will help us carry on the celebratory tradition of recognizing the best in television and film at the Party of the Year.” Sounds lit!
While this is the Saturday Night Live alum’s first time hosting an award show as big as the GG’s, the 43-year-old has amped-up his popularity recently with his political commentary, making him the perfect choice to lead 2018’s award show circus.
Catch him when the ceremony airs live from the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills on January 7, 2018, with nominations to be announced Monday, December 11.
Good luck, Seth!
